Hello,

I am one of the people who have not ordered the iPad for many reasons.

This means I now have to collect on launch day.

So what time do we think.

9am or 5pm?

ANYONE?!

Thank you!

Garry.

Better get ready to line up at 4AM sharp peeps. I'm expecting lines this year slightly shorter than last year just due to the stock numbers.

I don't like the launch craziness, I prefer to either preorder online immediately (which I have not done), or buy it when stocks start to replenish and things are more calm. I plan to do the latter.

Would of loved to pre order it but the financial situation was an issue.

I hope I'm right, but I'm thinking they might be shorter lines this year because of the pre-order delivery date being the same as the release date. Last year it was shipping on release day, so we got them like a week later. I hope.

My preorder has been stuck on "preparing for shipment" for two days now. I'm not worried but I want to know if FedEx or UPS is shipping mine and how far they would be from me if I opt to pick it up at the the location.

I hate waiting for deliveries and it would only be worse if I knew Apple Stores were selling iPads at 9am.

According to an employee at my local Apple Store, they will be selling them when the store opens in the morning, not waiting until 5pm like last year.
